Now that I think about it, I have been doing makeup, for almost half of my life.
It changed my world, my point of view in beauty, in art, it changed me, inside and out.
If you asked my mom, she would tell you I have always been creative, I have so many memories of myself doing creating stuff, as a young girl I was surrounded by girly and feminine things the whole time, in some ways they inspired me, without even noticing, now I know it was meant to be.
I always said makeup found me, I didn’t think was a professional career, I was obsessed with being an interior designer, but life is wise and back then I didn’t have the chance to pay for the school, one year later I was at home thinking in what did I love to do, and I said “oh I love makeup”, and I looked for a school, first time doing that, casually the school, that now is the most important makeup school in Mexico City, it was just in the corner of my sister’s old job, I went to see the school, and I feel in love right away.
After just a couple of lessons, I said to myself why it took me so long, and now I have been a freelance makeup artist for the last 6 years, and every day I fall in love with my career a little more, I am lucky enough to have my hobby and my passion as a paying job.
Besides the beauty of makeup, I see it as such a powerful and interesting tool, it’s fascinating. Everything that I have done and that I have until now, I owe it to my career and my mom and my sister, they have supported me in every single step that I have taken, I want to be the best makeup artist that I can, keep improving, keep fighting, keep working, I love what I do, and I don’t see myself stopping any time soon.
Makeup is my life.
